    I have to declare an interest as I know the owner. That said I am being as honest as possible. The Guesthouse is slightly out of the centre but is still only 400 yards from the night market and a short walk to the riverside. On a map look for the local Governors office and the GH is just opposite.

    Should you be a light sleeper I suggest you get a room at the back as there is some road noise. There are good restaurants and cafes nearby and the little pho shop two doors down stays open late and sells cold beer.

    The GH itself is well built and nicely finished the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Bathrooms are a good size with quality fittings and excellent showers with plenty of hot water and a good pressure. he airconditioning is effective and modern so fairly quiet. Flat screen TV on the wall has more than 40 channels inc BBC world and CNN. I like the fact that they have bedside lights so that you do not have to get up to turn the lights out!

    Breakfast iserved in the lobby nd is the usual Lao fare. Fried Eggs or Omlette Bread or Croissant butter and Jam. Plate of fruit and tea or coffee. The staff are helpful and attentive although some do not have much English.

    ... lost in my quest to find a book shop recommended in the guide book. I ended up walking in circles but eventually found a lovely juice place where I rested my feet.

    Vientiane is fairly small and there isn't too much to see. I made plans to travel to Vang Vieng the next day. I didn't go to the museum which I regret. I don't know what caused me to move through at such pace but I just felt driven to keep on moving.

    ... To our surprise the town was no where near as big as we imagined and we found we had completed the whole outskirts within an hour. We cycled through winding back roads that were home to some of the most beautiful guesthouses as well as cycling along the river and past the restaurants perched on the cliff side. We found hidden bars where local hippies were reclining on the patterned cushions and rugs that lined the wooden decking. It truly is an enchanting place with such a ...

    After a long tiring trip back to Kuala Lumpur, where I spend one night I am off to Laos Peoples Democratic Republic. (PDR which I have been told really means Please Don;t Rush). I am looking forward to this trip as it is good to be on the road again and I have been told that it is still one of the few countries in Asia that is not over run with tourists. When I pass through customs none of the immigration guys are convinced that I'm the same person as my passport photo. I ...

    ... We used this day to visit the Citadel. It was a little disappointing. A lot of it was just the site where the buildings had once been. They were destroyed during the war, and what was left was a shell of what had once been, and some new buildings built to house exhibits dedicated to what had been. That evening as we were heading back to the hotel after dinner there were lots of people hanging around in the street. I asked at reception what was going on and they ...

    ... bit aggressive' for her in her practice as a yogi, and a German girl with a long neck who looked a bit like Uph, and sparked up at every opportunity. Great. The geography between Luang Prabang is wonderful for trekking or observing nature at its best, less so when trying to get from A to B in as comfortable a way as possible. Our van began to climb, up and up, round and round, side to side. The scenery became increasingly beautiful, our fellow passengers ...
